A suspected electrical fire on Monday morning burned a home in the West Bank village of Duma belonging to the brother of a Palestinian man whose house was burned last month in an arson attack, according to reports by The Israel Fire Service.

At the end of July, Maamon Dawabshe's house was burned in the suspected arson that claimed another house as well in which a toddler Ali Dawabshe and his father Sa'ad were killed. 

Jewish terrorists are suspected in the attack.

In the fire on Monday, Dawabshe and his family managed to escape his burning home. The Israel Fire Service said a number of people sustained smoke inhalation in the blaze.
